    Nice little restaurant in town, but not too busy. Tasty food at reasonable prices. Recommend the duck salad, although it wasn’t warm & quite a small portion.

    Menu is limited but delicious. Service quick, polite and friendly. Rather an empty place when we were there. Overall great food at a reasonable cost with very good service.

    The staff was lovely, the restaurant was gorgeous, the food was presented lovely and I thoroughly enjoyed each bite. The only thing I would say is it was mega expensive. I had the burger, one drink and a hot chocolate and it cost £43 which I felt was a lot, but then again it was my first trip to London.

    Where do I start I'm trying to be as honest as possible and kind - table given was pretty awful at the end of a bank of tables ()restaurant was empty) time was 5pm I'd say at a guess the waiter wasn't that experienced just from what I'm about to say Ordered French onion soup (given a dessert spoon) asked if they had a soup spoon no it was the only one not that I was bothered I just wondered - the FO soup had no cheese top as most do - my partner ordered the smoked salmon - tasted very average no lemon wedge by the time he started eating it the waiter hadn't come back to ask if everything was ok as a waiter normally does We then both ordered sea bass as a main - it was a filet of sea bass normally for £18 it's both sides it was just the one side Again tasteless had to ask for wedge of lemon as it had a mountain of rocket and shaving of radish The head waiter sorted the problem and took off the starter from the bill Would I go again - probably not

    Very nice food though limited choice. At times service was not as professional or swift as it could have been.

    Lovely restaurant, the soft palette of cream and light browns, together wirh the white walls and large front windows makes it bright and airy. Very stylish, comfortable and relaxed. The food was pretty good, well cooked and presented, reasonably priced and the service was excellent. Sadly, on the day I went, the menu options were limited. I will certainly be back a la carte!

    After eating in this restaurant I couldn't think why it wouldn't be full every night. The food and drinks were excellent. Not a large menu but a good menu. Will definitely return when back in London. Staff were there when you needed them

    Although the food was delicious, it’s quite disgusting that they made a mistake in our bill three times.

    The quality of the food was good but the restaurant is very impersonal. We had to ask for the set menu, the mushroom wellington doesn’t come with any form of potato despite me being told it did when I asked which is important being a Type 1 diabetic, and we had to ask for condiments. Would we eat there again - probably not

    Restaurant had not seen our booking on the system although they were able to accommodate us. Service extremely slow. Had to ask for menu and waited 15 mins for drinks.
